Germanwings has canceled some fights after some crews “decided not to operate aircraft today following the reports on the accident of a Germanwings aircraft,” the airline said in a statement.
A Germanwings Airbus A320 with 144 passengers and six crewmembers crashed Tuesday in the French Alps. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
“We understand their decision,” Thomas Winkelmann, management spokesperson of Germanwings, said in a statement.
Most of the passengers on the plane, flying from Spain to Germany, were apparently Spanish or German residents.
